Herva's all bound by a somewhat startling space jazz universe

Herva's Solar Xub is a scuzzed-up bag of lovely noise. The strangled metallic bursts all seem to be bound in some gloopy space jazz universe. It's kind of startling, like how I felt when I heard Brian Eno's Nerve Net.

This is from his new album Hyper Flux on Planet Mu. Like everyone else, Herva's throwing field recordings into the mix, but he also went round to his dads to use his weirdo acoustic instruments. Not everyone is allowed round Herva's dad's place for album practice, so that makes this pretty unique.
